-american president of the united states clearly said the electorate felt that was the better choice. but we also know so much of the electorate did not vote for president obama. so let's say this. one, we as a country were able to cross a great hurdle by electing the first african-american president, but it doesn't mean that at the local level in our schools, in our churches, our communities that we're even discussing race, let alone dealing with real troubling and difficult race issues. so until we do that on a consistent level, until we do that at the local level, electing president obama is a historic event. it doesn't begin to filter from your community and my community. >> thank you. look forward to seeing you on the special than thank you for joining us early. >> thank you. >> tune in to prime time special event, obama's america: 2010 and beyond.

clinton, why does it take a disaster of this scale and magnitude away from the united states to create this kind of bipartisanship? >> well, i think that with something like this happens inside the united states we act in the same way. i think that it reminds us of our common humanity, of the needs that go beyond fleeting disagreements, whatever our policy disputes are, don't seem to matter much when people are dying. and hungry and sick. i think it's just a natural human response. just as people's disagreements are natural human response and in normal times can be healthy. it wouldn't be healthy for america if, in normal times, we had no political debates. and it would be perverse if in a time like this we let lesser matters keep us from joining hands. >> president bush, you're back. >> indeed. it's a little nostalgic. i'm glad i've come back for this purpose. i must confess i really -- i miss you as a person but i don't miss the spotlight. >> i think i'll take that as a compliment. good luck to you both. thank you. >> thank you so much. >> and up next, we'll talk politics and assess
